Not tuck them in the bottom drawer?
Not the social security folks might make an error?
English is funny that way; one word can be interpreted two ways.
Is it your responsibility to do the Highway Patrol's job for them and give yourself a ticket when you speed? Is it your responsibility to do Social Security's job for it and deny yourself a benefit?
I do believe that if they give you a benefit and you truly believe your are not entitled, then you should point out to them that they gave you too much money. Example. I get my medicare B reimbursed. I pay IRMAA. In 2010, SS put me in the second level of IRMAA. I appealed, however I continued to accept reimbursement for the amount I was actually paying, even if I believed that the amount was too high (on both sides). Eleven months later, my appeal was granted. Social security sent me a check for the overpayment. Once I had the overpayment, I wrote to my reimburser to tell them I owed them money for their over reimbursement. But I didn't refuse the incorrect amount as long as social security was charging me the incorrect amount.
Note: it took me more than one word to explain my meaning. You might try using more than one word next time when your one word can be read two different ways.
